Ahead of the official commencement of campaigns for the 2019 Presidential and National Assembly Elections, the Candidate of the Action Democratic Party (ADP) for Edo South Senatorial District, Dr Ese Owie, has unveiled his Campaign Structure christened “Team Impact ‘19”.
Speaking to Newsmen in Benin City at the weekend, the ADP State Publicity Secretary Hon Christopher Ojeikere named veteran political strategist and educationist, Hon. Izedonmwen 0shodin as Team Lead of the campaign. Hon Oshodin played key roles in both the 2nd and 3rd Republics of the Federation and at the dawn of the Nation’s current Democratic epoch was a major stakeholder in the stabilisation of citizen’s led governance. A grassroots mobilizer and consensus builder he brings on-board over three decades of hands-on, practical experience in political process re-engineering.
In driving the efficiency and effectiveness of the Campaign, Oshodin shall be supported by Five Deputy Team Leads that shall superintend the following Sub-Teams:
Stephen Orubor, Esq – Deputy Team Lead (Strategy & Organization)
Silas Momoh – Deputy Team Lead (Information & Communication)
Lady Osafanmwen Idehen – Deputy Team Lead (Empowerment & Welfare)
Ekpen Ogbeide-Nosabota – Deputy Team Lead (Documentation & Special Duties)
Momoh Ibrahim – Deputy Team Lead (Diversity & Integration)
Hon Ojeikere reiterated that Dr Ese Owie in constituting the Campaign Team kept to his promise of representing the collective interests and aspirations of ethnic nationalities in Edo South. He stated that the diverse membership of the Team is also reflective of the cosmopolitan nature of the Senatorial District as the nerve centre of the Old Midwestern Region.
Assuring the Party’s teeming supporters of victory at the Polls, he enjoined them to vigilantly protect their votes and sensitize all and sundry on the importance of performing their civic duties. In his view, electing Dr Owie as Senator in 2019 is the only means of guaranteeing sustainable and impact-driven development in Edo South.
The formal inauguration of the Team shall take place during the week at the ‘“Team Impact ‘19” Campaign Office in Benin City. Further appointments shall be announced as events unfold.
